The pilot of the 737 plane had already written down his name on the nose of the airplane and employees at Eindhoven Airport had written his name in capital letters on the windows: Alex received a warm and festive welcome on his return to Holland. The PSV first-team squad arrived in Eindhoven at half past twelve and the Brazilian was received with loud applause from fans.
Alex has written history by scoring an own goal and the winning goal in a Champions League game. Never before did a player score goals for both sides. Alex had the feeling of déjà vu, as he had scored an own goal against Arsenal before. Iván Helguera from Madrid is the only player to have beaten his own goalkeeper before. However, PSV have again booked a place in the last eight and that’s the only thing that really matters the day after the night before. They will learn tomorrow against which club they have been drawn. A small delegation of PSV officials has continued their flight from London to Athens, where the quarter final and semi finals draw takes place tomorrow afternoon.
